Mac Gamma Tip

While poking around and calibrating all my monitors the same way today I found the setting for making the Mac OS X gamma similar to that found on PCs, personally I prefer to see things how most of my users are going to see them. It’s under System Preferences, the Displays, Color, and then click Calibrate.

  1. Can’t test that right now but if that works it’s awesome, cheers. Always wanted to do that.

  2. Mac OS 9 has a whole big and sophisticated wizard to doing calibration which includes profiles. I don’t know if it has been dumped when OS X+ came along. Control Panels >> Monitors >> Colour, just for the record.

  3. IMHO, I prefer to see things how they are “supposed” to look and then I switch the profile over to one that mimics the unfortunates out there.

    – OSX allows you to save multiple display profiles.
